Not the best photo, but so far the only one I have of one of my new costumes for my upcoming shows.
I have been very busy and thus have not had a chance to post for a while.
I worked at the set of The Tempest, a Shakespeare play, being set to film by Julie Taymor. It was an amazing experience, being able to work with someone I admire so much, and with my favorite character in my favorite Shakespeare play. My co-worker Amy started constructing the costume, and I told her if she needed any help on it, to let me know, since It was a project I would hold very high, and so when the basic construction was done, I helped her to complete it. I have a ton of pictures, but none of that can be posted until the film is released. Ariel’s costume was the only one we made, but all the other costumes in the wardrobe room were absolutely beautiful.
I had 2 magazine appearances this month, one in the Italian Marie Claire, in which I modeled a costume at Brooklyn Indie Market, though my name is nowhere to be seen… And a bunch of costumes and costume parts that Andy and I made are in this month’s Bust magazine, though they got the credits wrong and forgot to mention Andy.
In upcoming news, I have two fashion shows coming up, premiering my new collection, based on Little Red Riding Hood. The first show is to take place at Wicked Faire in Whippany, NJ on February 20th. This incarnation will be more victorian and steampunk. Then, on March 21, I will be doing a show at none other than my beloved Dances of Vice, and that version of the show will be more fantastical feeling, as the theme of the event is pagan rites of spring.
I will post more about these events, and perhaps images from my magazine appearances at a later date, but now, I have to get ready to go to work!
